Kirstie has launched an all-out attack on pharmaceutical companies and makers of antidepressants. Alley got into a heated Twitter debate after posting a series of controversial comments about the use and administration of the drugs.
"HOW is it legal to INTICE people to down TWO mind altering drugs by using cartoon characters to depict the DRUGS? ABILIFY," Alley tweeted. "Big PHARMA not marketing to youth? ABILIFY… Talking umbrella, cute little smiley pill, while lethal side effects like suicide r rattled off," she added.
Some fans tweeted their own experience with the drug, which varied from the lifesaving to the extremely negative. Alley never let up on her own stance though, no matter how others felt.
"You can hate me for my viewpoint, but on this it won't change… some things are just not right… a 'little bit of slavery' is not acceptable," Alley posted.
Scientology teaches that psychiatry is dangerous and any mental illnesses could be overcome with methods other than drugs. Tom Cruise famously defended Scientology's views on antidepressants after Brooke Shields admitted that she had used them while suffering from postpartum depression.
When asked what made her an expert on the subject, Alley quickly fired off an explicit reply. "I don't know," Alley tweeted, "guess the same thing that makes u a [expletive]… experience."
"I'm getting off here… I'm causing way too much controversy… Ours has become a country of medicos and drugs, but we just keep gettin sicker. Poor God… He sure has his work cut out for him," Alley tweeted before leaving the conversation.
